Another month, time for another beautiful red Little Lace Box.

January Little Lace Box was one I was anticipating with a lot of excitement. Every month Little Lace Box announces next month’s theme. ( a practice I really love, especially because they are such experts at executing the themes) January theme was ” The Dining Car”. It was to celebrate the beginning of Downton Abbey’s fifth season. Before I start to share my thoughts on the gorgeous January box,  here are my other reviews of Little Lace Box if you’ve just found us here on TheBoxQueen.

An Important Update: February Little Lace Box theme is announced, and subscriptions are open. As some of you may already know monthly subscriptions sell out- FAST- so grab one when you can. Special discount code TBQ10 is still available for $10 OFF.  your 3 and 6 box subscriptions. The boxes are an amazing value.

Also important to note- All the items can be purchased in Little Lace Box boutique if you missed the subscription.

I am a HUGE period drama fan. I also LOVE English period novels. Our new puppy Emma’s name comes from the Jane Austen book. (have you seen her pic on TheBoxQueen Facebook page 🙂 ) Downton Abbey is right up my alley. Actually I’ve been a dedicated viewer for years.

Each time I open my mailbox to find my LittleLaceBox I get such a thrill. It’s knowing I’ll more than likely find pieces in my box that’ll be just delightful. It’s also the curiosity that comes from wondering how the curators interpreted the month’s theme in the pieces they chose.

I genuinely still think Little Lace Box is my new favorite Lifestyle subscription. Three months in a row I am so pleasantly surprised.

Are you ready to see what’s in the January box?

Siena Tea Collection – Tea For One ($29.99)

What’s more English, and more Downton Abbey than tea? In the January Little Lace Box I was so VERY happy to find a tea for one tea pot/tea cup pair ( ON SALE at the LLB boutique). The “Tea For One” service is inspired by the Edwardian era when each tea was made custom for the individual’s taste.

If you’ve been a reader for a while, you’ve probably heard that tea has a big part in my life. I start my day with tea, and drink a cup right before I sleep. ( and many through out the day) This tea set is made for me. Also did you see the colors are mint & purple. Another Elif classic LOL. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!

Royal Apothic Bubble Cream ($18.99) & Lucy B’s Roll-on Perfume Oil ($16.99) 

I’ve always liked nostalgic old pharmacy type packaging, and this Bubble Cream reminds me of 1960’s ads from Mad Men. It smells so clean, and fresh. A light pleasant scent. I’ll use it to lather in the shower, but also will try to see how it works during a bath for bubbles. Can’t wait to try this pretty product, and it looks adorable near my bathtub. Very decorative.

My Lucy B’s perfume oil is in Royal Green Fig & Vanilla Woods. The scent is growing on me. It reminds me of my grandmother but in a very positive, makes me feel safe & happy kinda way. 🙂

Classic Edwardian Hair Jewelry Bobby Pin Set ($24)

This is really pretty hair jewelry from Downton Abbey collection. ( the price shows $21.99 on the information sheet but right on my hair pin set a sticker says $24) I’ve seen, & liked this collection before, and I am so happy to own a piece from it.

Mine is diamond shaped, and features white diamond Czech jewels. You can find these beautiful pins in Little Lace Box’s boutique on sale.

Beekman 1802 Authentic Hand-Forged Britannia Fruit Spoon ($19.99) & Capital Bee Raw Hand Cut Holly Honeycomb (Bonus)

This special spoon is hands down one of the most unique items I’ve ever received in any of my boxes. It’s made from the same material used to make Oscar statuettes. The mold is an actual 18th century spoon mold found on the grounds of Beekman Mansion. How is that for a background story? I’ll be displaying this spoon in my home, and will use it as decorative item in my table settings.

The honeycomb is a bonus item, and oh so good! Love honey that’s this special.I got a spoonful to taste, and I seriously couldn’t stop eating the super yummy honey, and chewing the honeycomb. If you like honey, you need this one in your life.

How To Be A Lady ($16.99)

Last but certainly not least is the How To be A Lady book. The three sisters who founded Little Lace Box  were raised as ladies in the South, and a part of me connects with this so much. When I was growing up my parents were big on manners as well. This book has been a great read, and I’ll share it with my girls as they get older.

Overall Impressions: January was another month that solidified Little Lace Box’s status in my list of lifestyle boxes. It is definitely one of the front runners in terms of quality, mix of items, fun themes, and value!! This month’s box was valued over $126, and I’ll use each item which were once again very high in quality.

If you would like to try Little Lace Box, don’t forget you can use TBQ10 to get $10 off your monthly sub.

I can’t wait to hear your experiences with Little Lace Box, & what you think of my January Box. Have you tried this subscription? Which month has been your favorite so far?

      Downton Abbey is the best!! 🙂 I obviously totally recommend Little Lace Box. The first three months I’ve been receiving the box, the items have been all things I lovingly used. Let me know what you think if you end up with Feb. box. Happy Friday. XOXO, Elif

  • Elif -this box is SO me! I am a tea fanatic as well! Everything in this box is perfection! Thank you for sharing. I may have to take advantage of the coupon and if I do I will use your link for sure.

    • Theboxqueen

      This box was a tea fanatic and period fan’s paradise. 🙂 I kept taking the pieces out and my excitement level built up with each piece. Just yesterday used the bubble cream in my bath, and I think it was divine. Haha can’t stop gushing about LLB. Thanks Joely, always fun to chat with you. If you end up getting Feb. I would love to hear what you think. Happy Friday! XOXO, Elif

      • I will probably have to wait which is sad I want to try it but recovering from an unexpected trip to NY to visit my hubby’s ailing father has set us back a little. I will keep my mind on it though. Yes this is a tea lovers dream and the barrettes are adorbs too!

        • Theboxqueen

          Hope everything is fine with your father-in law. 🙁
          Boxes can wait. Hugs and kisses to you Joely. I know it’s hard emotionally when parents don’t feel well. XOXO, Elif

  • Cheryl

    I am so impressed with this sub- the themes, the curation, everything. I’m so happy that I was able to subscribe this time around (was sold out when I tried last month), so I cannot wait to share in the LLB excitment. 🙂

    • Theboxqueen

      I know right? The themes are so well executed, and the pieces all seem to be chosen with love & care. Very important as I think quality is not always easy to find in boxes. SO happy you’ll be able to experience it my dear, and we can share the excitement. Can’t wait to hear what you think of LLB. <3 XOXO, Elif

  • Looks like I’m going to try the February box! Might be the only one I get because I’m not sure this box is really my style, but… well… I love boxes and letting others shop for me. 😉

    • Theboxqueen

      It’s good you are giving it a chance Inna, I personally think LLB rocks :-)) Jan. is the third one I received and I loved the mix of personal pampering, style, and home pieces. Please come back and let me know what you think after you receive February. I am so curious what you’ll think. XOXO, Elif

  • Sibel Gultekin

    I can’t think of anything better than a quiet afternoon with my book and tea.(I am also a big tea fan myself)

    • Theboxqueen

      If I can actually find time to sit down & relax it is by far the best thing for me as well! Book, and a cup of good hot tea. 🙂 XOXO, Elif

  • Larissa

    The tea set is so pretty! Would love one in my office. I drink tea often and that would make the experience so much more pleasant during my workday.

    • Theboxqueen

      As I write right this moment I am drinking from my teapot/cup. It became my daily routine since the day I got the set. The tea tastes better in it haha. Totally recommend for your day at the office. Welcome to TheBoxQueen Larissa. <3 XOXO, Elif
